Additional Notes:
Give Me More suggests that our over-consumption, and the environmental destruction that it creates, is in large part driven by our desire to fit into culturally constructed gender roles. How much of our consumption is actually serving us - and how much is the result of our obedience to a system that wants to fit us into predetermined patterns and roles?Give Me More plays out in three parts; Glitter in the Gutter, The American Koan, and ...yet, again.Glitter in the Gutter, is a comedic duet created and performed by Catherine Cabeen and Kristina Berger, which embodies the glamour and grit that weaves together the lives of two aging performers.This American Koan, is a work for seven dancers that highlights the intersectionality of gender roles, over-consumption and environmental destruction. Through a score of original music and text, drag performance, highly kinetic, sensuous movement, and an interactive set made of 200lbs of recycled clothing, This American Koan asks us to consider what we consume, and why. This American Koan features choreography by Catherine Cabeen, music by Mark Katsaounis, lighting by Philip Trevino, and performances by Catherine Cabeen, Nya Bowman, Darby Canessa, Hector Cerna, Sarah Lustbader, Kathryn Maclellan, and Trebien Pollard.…yet again, a solo choreographed and performed by Catherine Cabeen to the music of Westin Portillo, is a rallying cry. The work embodies the quest for personal agency, which we must claim in order to advocate for ourselves and each other, in a world where we are so often told who to be and what to want.
